Prior to last season’s Jets-Patriots playoff game, Antonio Cromartie went off on Tom Brady, saying, among other things, “F— him, a–hole.” Asked about Brady this week, Cromartie said he’s not backing down from anything he said in the past.
But if Cromartie was hoping to get Brady to engage in a war of words, he’s going to be disappointed.
“I don’t care what he says about me,” Brady said when asked about Cromartie today.
Brady did say, however, that he respects both Cromartie and Darrelle Revis as opponents.
“He’s very good, excellent player,” Brady said of Cromartie. “They have two very good corners. They have a bunch of good corners actually. Two that are out there in their regular defense are very good. They’re both fast. They’re both physical. They play well at the line of scrimmage. They’re very disruptive. They lead the league in pass defense, so it kind of tells you everything you want to know about them.”
But when asked about Cromartie saying he doesn’t like the way Brady acts after Patriots touchdowns, Brady reiterated, “I really don’t care what he says.”
